Maybe im wrong, but it was my presumption that this guy was a good player...3-4 years ago. Is this correct? Wasnt he supposed to be a kind of power hitter, or am i way off base? Now he is completely worthless.

ive never owned him so i hadnt payed too much attention.

Whats the deal, or was mu innitial impression wrong?

He was good, you are right. He now is not, however. Fantasy wise he is completely worthless unless it's an all California team league. Even then....

Power hitter :-b
He was a high OBP type player who could nab double digits in steals. His steals have declined in Oakland.

In the late 90's to 2001... He was on average about a 315. avg. 410 obp, 10 homers, 15 steals.... He even had a 112 runs one season.... Those are awesome #s from the catcher spot... Those days are long gone.

lol, i knew he was a good player at least. SO what happened to him? I had saw he hit his first homerun since like 2004 the other day. I had a good laugh, I mean guys like David Eckstien has a couple a year. I suppose thats just not somethign he even tries for.? If I remember correctly didnt he have a kind of big contract?

Actually, Kendall DID have power. But it wasn't 4 years ago, it was more like 8. He hit for pretty good power from 1998-2000 but lost his power when he sustained a brutal injury.
